Sansa Portrait by Ratgirlstudios Sansa Portrait by Ratgirlstudios
One of my favorite things about A Game of Thrones (and the rest of the series) is GRRM’s ability to change your mind about a character. Upon first reading Game of Thrones I hated Sansa. She was a silly little girl with very bad judgement. During Clash of Kings I pitied her situation and became intrigued by her character growth. When I reached the end of Storm of Swords she was one of my favorite characters. Upon rereading the first book I was able to reevaluate her actions, seeing them in a different light. She had grown from the little girl who believed in happy endings to an intriguing young woman with the prospect of becoming so much more than a pretty little songbird. I have theory that Sansa is going to become one of the most dangerous characters in Westeros. In my heart of hearts I really want her to be the one to destroy Cersei Lannister.

Yes! I most definitely agree with what you've said! In the first book I couldn't possibly stomach her.
But just like you, I watched her grow and mature and suffer and she's one of my favorite characters as well.

Your drawing is gorgeous, I am in love with the colors, her hair is beautiful and as others said, her eyes and her stare say everything ;)

And yes. I agree. I hope, I reaaaaally really hope she's gonna crush Cersei and leave nothing but ashes :D

This is really lovely, and, as previously mentioned, the look in her eyes says a lot about her character.

All Sansa does is try to survive, she just has a different skillset to Arya because she finds it easier to comply with societal expectations - not that it's done her an awful lot of good.

Agreed. Also, the strength in her gaze here makes me think of her time as Alayne (not to spoil anything for others :) ). I love her evolution. :D
